What To Look For in an Excellent Moving Company
Moving house can be a stressful business. While it may be exciting to be starting a new adventure, leaving behind your old home can be emotional, not to mention the general stress of having to pack up all your belongings and get them from A-B.
When moving day is finally upon you, getting a reputable, friendly and efficient moving company to help you can make a real difference, If you find an excellent quality moving company, they will do everything they can to make your move as stress and hassle-free as possible.
There is a huge number of moving companies out there, so it can often be overwhelming when trying to decide who to choose. You want to get a good deal, but also know that your precious belongings are in safe hands.
Quality moving services all have very similar priorities, and if you can find one that can demonstrate these then you know you are onto a winner!
Here are some of the things to look out for.
As with any service nowadays, it is easy to find out what kind of reputation a company has by looking at their customer testimonials.
A good, reputable, trustworthy moving company will have plenty of positive testimonials from customers singing their praises. This is by far the best way of being able to tell if a moving company is likely to do a good job, so make sure you do your research and check out their reputation before you make a decision.
Pricing is very important and a good moving company will be open and honest with their prices.
You want a moving company that prices their services fairly. You should be getting a good deal, at the same time, if they are willing to move your entire house for a price that seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Search around so you get a feel of what an average price is and then decide from there.
Make sure that you are absolutely clear about what you are paying for their services too. Often moving companies can try to hide fees to appear cheaper from the outset, only to add on these hidden costs at the end.
A good moving company will want to be fair to their customers and provide and affordable, high-quality service. If they aren’t being transparent it may be that you’ll get a nasty surprise when you are presented with your final bill.
An excellent quality removals company will offer several different services, and work with you to tailor their services to your specific needs.
Offering several different kinds of services such as home moving, furniture delivery, international moving, and packing services shows the company is professional, experienced and knows what they are doing!
Finding out how long a moving company has been in the business will also give you a good idea of their credentials too.
You’ll no doubt want to go with a moving company you know you can trust, so it is a good idea to make sure that they are licensed and insured for your peace of mind.
Great customer care
Taking care of their customers and ensuring they do a great job for them should be every moving company’s ultimate priority.
Things like turning up on time, being organised, flexible, and helpful, being happy to give customers advice and go above and beyond to ensure they pack up, move, and deliver their belongings to their new home quickly and carefully all come naturally to good moving companies.
Make sure yours does all this and you can rest assured you are in good hands.
Of course, there are things that you as the customer can do to ensure you make your move easier.
Making sure all your furniture will fit in your new home, for example, is important. Measure entrances, stairwells, lifts etc so you can rest assured you’ll be able to get all of your furniture into your new home.
Try to have a plan of where you want everything to go so that you can tell your moving company exactly where to put things and save you from the stress and effort of having to move heavy items of furniture when they are not in the right place.
If you are packing your belongings yourself take time and care to ensure they are well protected and won’t get damaged en route.
Doing all this, and making sure you pick a great moving team will save you a lot of time, stress, and money, and will make your moving day a positive and exciting experience.
